Both of the children were born in New York. No mention of Esther's husband and father of the children, Calvin Case. 1880 Census: 240 W. 23rd Street, NYC - possibly a boarding house. Next door to the House of Holy Comforter for Invalids (private home).

Case, age 18, a clerk in a store; Laura Briggs, age 9, and her sister, Josephine, age 6, both in school. The boarders were: Bradley Samuel, a 27 year old physician from RI, Minnie Curtis, a 35 year old boarder from MA, Anna McFee, a 30 year old boarder from MN, and Jane Bulger, a 30 year old servant from Ireland. 1900 Census: Reel 648 ED 481 Page 3B Greenfield Town, Franklin County, Massachusetts (renting a house) Esther C.

Emma (born Sept. 1855) age 45 is noted as the mother of 4 children, all surviving. However three of the four are older then the nine years that she and James have been married, which makes me suspect that this is his second marriage.
